Fifteen members of the Whitham family met for an after-Thanksgiving lunch at the Crossroads Restaurant in Versailles on Friday. Those in attendance were: June Kendall from Memphis Tennessee; Floyd Ray, Sundra and Irma Whitham from Vevay; Edwin Whitham from Missouri; Bonnie Murray from Rising Sun; Robb, Maria and Trey Steele from Cummings, Georgia; Norris and Joann Krall from Osgood; Eslie and Donnie Alford from Fairview; and Nadine Hankinson and Jean Burgess from Quercus Grove. Time was spent reviewing memories of the past and refreshing our minds of the present happenings of our families.

Terry Cook, son of Harold and Lois Kelly Cook, passed away at his home in Hawaii on Thanksgiving Day. Terry had been with his mother in Sellersburg and Patriot for the funeral of his dad, Harold Cook, and had flown back to Hawaii on Wednesday. Terry was born near Florence and his parents moved to Sellersburg when he was young. He grew up there and has been living in Hawaii for the past 30 plus years. Sympathy to the family. Thanks to Jean Burgess for the two news items.

The River Red Hat Ladies from the Carrollton area had their last meeting at a lovely home in Indian Hills near Carrollton. There was a big attendance for the pitch-in lunch and it was a good time.
